The tartan skirt has been in and out of fashion trends for about 500 years and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. From 16th century Scotland to Vivienne Westwood and the 20th century punk rockers, you have to admit that it’s a versatile piece that definitely has some staying power. And like many other mainstream fashion trends, the tartan skirt has found its place in fetish culture.
In fetish terms it’s easy to dismiss the tartan skirt as a throwback to a bygone era and possibly even think of it as a fashion no-no. But the best thing about a tartan skirt is how easy it is to mix and match with more traditional fetish fashion to create a hot look that is edgy and provocative. There’s nothing like a skirt that can do double duty from the streets to the fetish club (and back to the streets again when it’s time to go home). Saves on changing in the dressing rooms!
So how can you make a tartan skirt work for your night out? A short, short tartan skirt with suspenders is a quick and easy ‘naughty schoolgirl’ look. But to avoid any Britney Spears comparisons, ditch the white shirt tied at the waist in favour of a black PVC bra, some shiny PVC gloves and some extra-special black leather boots.
Or instead of a traditional tartan skirt, try a design that incorporates other fabrics like a PVC and tartan combination miniskirt. And men can get involved in the tartan look as well. A PVC and tartan kilt will make a bold statement at any fetish event.
As you can see, the tartan skirt has clearly earned its place in the world of fetish fashion and it plays well with other traditional fetish fabrics. This versatile piece can be a simple yet effective addition to your fetish collection.
